In Chamberlain's article, the history of the lever escapement is told from its earliest phase, mainly with reference to a 1792 pamphlet entitled;
"An Answer to a Pamphlet entitled "A Narrative of Facts" lately published by Mr Thomas Mudge Junior relating to some Timekeepers constructed by his Father Mr Thomas Mudge."
Includes much comment on the rivalry between Mudge and Emery.
